MADISON, Wis. - Three new specialty Wisconsin license plates celebrate service industries and support cancer research, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said.
The Department of Motor Vehicles announced Wednesday in a news release that the plates support nurses, Boy Scouts of America and funding childhood cancer and related blood disorder research.
The new plates are:
- "Nurses Change Lives" plate donations go to the Wisconsin Organization of Nurse Executives Inc.
- "Help Cure Childhood Cancer" plates support the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Inc., or MACC, fund.
- "Scouting Alumni" plates, which have either a "Boy Scout" or "Eagle Scout" decal, will go to the nonprofit Boy Scouts of America National Foundation and will be distributed to local Wisconsin councils.
The new plates are available for a $15 fee for non-personalized plates and an additional $25 tax-deductible donation, which is transferred to the sponsoring organization. Plate holders also pay $25 each annual plate renewal, which is in addition to the regular registration fee.
Motorists can also personalize a specialty license plate.
